Quick Chocolate Fix

Sometimes you just have to have chocolate. You know what I’m talking about-–you can have apple pie, snickerdoodles and peanut brittle staring you in the face and you are not even tempted. There are times when it’s simply chocolate or nothing–and for those times, you start with an empty mug.

Difficulty: Easy

Servings: 1

Prep Time: 5 min   Cook Time: 90 seconds  


3 Tbsp butter
4 Tbsp sugar
1 egg white
3 Tbsp flour
2 Tbsp cocoa
3 Tbsp milk
tiny pinch of salt
few chopped nuts, optional
small splash vanilla, optional
few mini marshmallows, optional
few mini chocolate chips, optional


Put butter into your mug and microwave it for about 15 seconds or just until the butter is melted but not hot. Add sugar and egg white to your butter and stir just a little.

Stir in flour, cocoa, milk and salt. If you’re using the chopped nuts, vanilla, chocolate chips or marshmallows, add them now.

When the contents of your mug look like brownie batter, zap it in the microwave for 1 minute, 30 seconds. The top will puff up like a miniature chocolate soufflé.

You can drizzle it with chocolate syrup or plop a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top if you like but it is rich, dense and oh-so-chocolatey all by itself. Be sure to eat it while it is still warm! (Don’t be overly zealous, though. It’s very hot when it comes out of the microwave.)

    I really wish I had NOT found this recipe!! I’ve made it a dozen times already with different additions (with/without nuts, choc. chips, marshmallows, etc.) and it’s always good! Mine does better nuked at 2 minutes (fully-loaded, with all the additions).

    I finally started splitting one “cup”cake with my husband (which was another mistake) and adding ice cream for a hot brownie-like sundae with all the trimmings!

    I had to join Weight-Watchers, so I now hate you (but thanks for the recipe)!

    Kelly in TX,

    You are my hero. I was having a severe chocolate emergency this evening and there was NO chocolate in the house. I remembered this recipe and quickly made it. It’s all that you describe and more. Thanks for the great recipe and a cure for the most serious chocolate emergencies!
